Swashbuckler or Pirate Dave Winer Gnomedex opening party 2007

Not exactly the best photo quality. That is basically par for the course with me. One reason I love using a digital video camera now. Years ago I never got around to posting these pictures. During Gnomedex 07 many others posted similar photos of Dave Winer in this Swashbuckler / pirate outfit. While looking for other Seattle content for a recent article I came across these and decided why not post some old school Gnomedex stuff.

Each year the Gnomedex opening partying in Seattle took place inside the Odyssey Maritime Discovery Center. Unfortunately this awesome location is reported to now be closed. The now defunct learning center / museum was located inside the Bell Harbor Conference Center – which is where the Gnomedex conference took place in Seattle.

Personally I could have never worn such a heavy jacket at that event. Every year the Odyssey Maritime Discovery Center was like an oven – they never seemed to be able to properly cool that facility. Still a really enjoyable learning center that definitely should be missed by the community and tourist.
